The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) and Canada’s Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies (Rx&D) have welcome finalization of the text for the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

CETA represents the first free trade agreement between any G8 country. EFPIA and Rx&D believe it will, once in place, be beneficial to patients on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as for innovation and research.

Russell Williams, President, Rx&D: “CETA represents an important step towards putting Canada on the same playing field as its major trading partners… We now look to the governments involved to move swiftly on implementation; this is good for all the countries involved, and it’s good for Canadians.”
